[audio]Down Our Way - Single Episodes - Old Time Radio Researchers Group
DOWN OUR WAY Not much is known about this series. A search on the internet turned up virtually nothing, and it is not mentioned in any of the reference books, except for a short blurb in Jay Hickerson’s Ultimate Guide. However, it is a very entertaining show. The storyline revolves around neighbors helping neighbors, and using their faith in their daily lives. Believed to have been made in the early 1930s, the series is accented with the main characters practicing their choir hymnals...

DR. KILDARE Dr. Kildare was produced for syndication in 1949 at WMGM, New York. It was based on the popular Dr. Kildare movies of the late 1930's and early 1940's, and brought to the microphone the stars of that series, Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore.

ROCKY FORTUNE In the days prior to From Here To Eternity, Frank Sinatra's popularity was waning and this private eye show was an attempt to remedy that. In it, Frank played Rocky Fortune, a "footloose and fancy-free young man," frequently unemployed, who took numerous, adventurous odd jobs. It was a relatively undistinguished series; definitely a "B grade" radio series, saved by Sinatra's charm and a tongue-in-cheek approach...

Stewart was never better on the air than in this drama of Britt Ponset, frontier drifter created by Frank Burt.

STAND BY FOR CRIME This show, from the early 1950s, is a good example of the true story style of delivery made popular in radio's classic crime shows Gangbusters and Mr. District Attorney. Of course, the best and most popular of the true crime shows was Dragnet -- the monotone, "just the facts" style demanded by Jack Webb in the show made two points at once: first, that the show wasn't a typical melodramatic crime show, as had been on radio since "the good old days", and more importantly, th...

The first episode in particular, with Carmen Miranda, is a prime example of this...

[audio]Casey, Crime Photographer - Single Episodes - Old Time Radio Researchers Group
CASEY, CRIME PHOTOGRAPHER This series went on the air on July 7, 1943 and lasted until April 22, 1955. A total of 431 episodes were broadcast. Casey, Crime Photographer had more history than substance. It was a B-grade radio detective on a par perhaps with The Falcon, better than Mr Keen, Tracer of Lost Persons, but lacking the style and polish of The Adventures of Sam Spade. Originally appearing in the pages of Black Mask, under the watchful eyes of then-editor Joseph Shaw, Flashgun Casey was ...

DIMENSION X Dimension X was first heard on NBC April 8, 1950, and ran until September 29, 1951. Strange that so little good science fiction came out of radio; they seem ideally compatible, both relying heavily on imagination. Some fine isolated science fiction stories were developed on the great anthology shows, Suspense and Escape. But until the premiere of Dimension X -- a full two decades after network radio was established -- there were no major science fiction series of broad appeal to ad...
